Romney Vs. Obama Interactive Map

This little interactive map provided by the LA Times made me pretty mad at first... but after toying around with it for a while it has given me a totally different perspective on the race. Use this tool to show your Romney supporting family and friends how little a shot Romney has at winning the general election. After seeing it in black and white (or red and blue), they may thank you.

You could try this electoral college map as well

which I think is even clearer

Romney needs to take EVERY toss up state. And he won't do it - not by a long shot.

Dems have their own electoral college maps as well.
Dems are talking about the possibility of taking states like Indiana and Montana which are well into Republican territory.

All the current maps do not take into account Gary Johnson running as 3rd party.
All the current polls are inaccurate and don't include Gary Johnson.
This will take it further towards Obama.

Of course nobody has produced an electoral college map of Obama vs Ron Paul.
The poll data isn't there.
State polls of Obama vs Ron Paul including Gary Johnson are required.

But neither Romney nor Obama want these polls run.
Obama because he knows he can easily beat Romney but he would be 2nd favorite against Ron Paul.
Romney because it would discredit his nomination attempt.

"In the end, more than they wanted freedom, they wanted security. They wanted a comfortable life, and they lost it all -- security, comfort, and freedom. When ... the freedom they wished for was freedom from responsibility, then Athens ceased to be free."

Bump. Has anybody else

Bump. Has anybody else played around with this thing? Thoughts?
